How sweet! Ian Somerhalder celebrated his directing debut on ‘The Vampire Diaries’ by hosting a viewing party with his fiancee, Nikki Reed. But, was his ex and star of the show, Nina Dobrev, invited to watch with them?
Ian Somerhalder, 36, and Nikki Reed, 26, found such a cute way to celebrate a milestone in Ian’s career with a little get together, which included a few of his favorite The Vampire Diaries buddies. However, one noticeably absent face was his infamous ex, Nina Dobrev, 26.
Ian Somerhalder & Nikki Reed’s ‘TVD’ Party: Where Was Nina Dobrev?
It must have been so exciting for Ian, and even Nikki, to watch his hard work come to life on the screen during the March 12 episode of The Vampire Diaries. Thankfully, he was surrounded by some amazing and supportive people, too!
In a photo posted on Instagram, Ian and Nikki are cuddling close together as his pals and co-stars, Zach Roerig, Matthew Davis, Chris Wood, and Michael Malarkey surround them. How cool is it that they were all together for Ian’s biggest episode yet?
Unfortunately, one of the biggest stars of the show, Nina, was nowhere to be found. Not only was she apparently not present at the cast viewing party, but she didn’t promote the episode on any of her socials. Bummer!
What makes this even more interesting is that since breaking up with Ian, Nina has been romantically linked to Chris several times. But, Chris was at the party flying solo with her ex. Awkward much?
Ian Doesn’t Think Delena Has Lasting Power
Delena fans won’t be happy to hear this, but in a recent interview Ian spoke about The Vampire Diaries and his on-screen romance with Nina’s Elena, and he isn’t confident that they are really meant to be. Ouch!
“I don’t think that’s absolutely going to happen, but I think they’re trying,” Ian said when he was asked about whether or not Damon and Elena will be able to get back to the way they once were. “The situation is very intense and it’s hard. But you definitely see [him putting in effort] and you don’t always see that side of him. So, that’s cool.”
Hmm, interesting. Check out more from Ian’s interview HERE.
